FRESH on the heels of the Paris's glittery fashion week, all eyes are trained on New York where designers are gearing up to present their latest looks for fall and winter 2019 starting next week.

Formally known as New York Fashion Week : The Shows, the series of presentations, runway productions, parties and other promotional events, kicks off on February 7, preceded by three days of menswear collections.

Fashion Icon Tom Ford  will unite the sexes with the February featuring looks for both men and women.

''Fashion week is a celebration of fashion's role in our culture,'' said Leslie Rosso, executive vice president of IMG  fashion events, which puts on the shows.

''We all wear clothes,'' Russo observed. ''I think you would really see over over the last few years how  fashion week  has  changed the conversation around things like diversity in casting.

''On the runway,'' she explained, ''size diversity in terms of  designers now featuring models that are, you know, beyond a size zero.''

In a similar vein, a slate of globally oriented shows will span regions from Indonesia to Hong Kong and Azerbaijan to London, including Indonesian Diversity, featuring modern looks from Jakarta including hijabs.

Five designers, among them Norma Kamali and Mara Hoffman, are celebrating ''conscious fashion'' at Fashion For Peace.

''Fashion is a universal language that has the power and potential to create inclusiveness in human beings around the world,'' said Fashion For Peace's Sadhguru, the famed  yoga guru. [Agencies]
